Here you go you will notice there are two numbers for each position that depends on how you have your taskbar buttons set to like never combine. And these numbers are for basic only not aero.
Bottom
841 - 1010

Top
844 - 1011

Right
843 - 1013

Left
842 - 1012

You're Welcome
Hint: Put a copy of the aero.msstyles on your desktop to modify it so you do not corrupt the original one.
If you need some help let me know.
